We had guests for dinner on Saturday and I wanted to try something different for an appetizer but not too different. I tend to try out recipes, that I have not made before, at a dinner party. Do you do that too? It must be a faux pas but I figure this way you are under a little pressure to do it right and usually it works out quite well.
I was thinking along the lines of a falafel but I wanted to keep it raw. Our guests are not raw foodies or even vegans but they do enjoy plant-based foods and I knew that they would be open to something new.
I do not like raw chickpeas, so I thought that I would use soaked sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. These are super easy on the digestion. I basically took a general falafel recipe and switched it up a little. This is something that you could bring to an upcoming cocktail party.
